Tottenham midfielder Lewis Holtby insists that he will fulfill a boyhood dream when he steps out to face Everton on Sunday.
The 22-year-old grew up as a fan of the Toffees alongside his father who worked in Liverpool before moving over to Germany.
Holtby only joined up with the north London club in January but has made a real impact on Andre Villas-Boas’ side as they look to continue their push for a top-four finish with victory over the Merseyside club at White Hart Lane.
The Germany international insists that he will put his allegiances with David Moyes’ team aside as he looks to help his side collect all three points.
Holtby said: “This is a boyhood dream,
“Everton is my dad’s team and was my team when I was a little boy, but now I play for Spurs and I will give everything for the club.
“I’m determined to win the game and hopefully score as well.
“My dad will be at the game. He’s brought his Everton shirt with him! There will be a father/son situation! It’s always typical English humour with him.”
